Summary

Kaesler Viognier is better known around the winery as “Steve’s Love Child,” as it is our winemaker, Stephen Dew’s favourite white variety. It is made from estate grown fruit.

Vinification

Fruit was lightly whole bunched pressed on the 5th of February 2015. Juice was fermented in French oak barriques 30% new and the remainder 2 & 3 year old oak with 100% wild yeast and fermented cool for the next 20 days. The wine remained in oak for 15 months.

Colour

 Light straw.

Nose

 Peach and Honeysuckle.

Palate

Rich, creamy taste hints of Peach, Apricot full fruit flavour with spicy cinnamon and notes of new oak in the background. This is a thinking person’s wine, stop and let the wine open up as you drink, the surprise is well worth it.

Notes

Enjoy in its youth or cellar for up to 10 years.
